Here’s our five favourites gifts for all the family and the house:
Single Vintage Silver Napkin Ring, Hallmarked 1906, £58.00
What a pretty old lady! This vintage silver napkin ring was hallmarked in Birmingham in 1906, almost 115 years ago, and is still in such good condition. It has a really pretty engraved floral design around the centre and a beautiful, delicate flower edging to it.

Coeur De Lion Bracelet, £57.95
A lovely bracelet which mixes blue, grey and black. Created using glass and Swarovski crystal which are elegantly combined with haematite and rhinestone rondelles. The design is completed with stainless steel and fine glass cylinders.
FOR THE HOUSE
Pewter Mantel Clock, Mackintosh Style, £62.95
Handcrafted in Birmingham, this attractive Pewter clock has based its design on the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, famous for much work in Glasgow in the last century. A lovely gift for both Mackintosh lovers and clock lovers.

When I have a boiled egg at home, this is what it is served in! These egg cups are designed for larger eggs, or could be used for other purposes, like a cactus pot or mini vase.
